Pre-smocked fabric

I just bought a smocked fabric dress for $60. And I don't love it because it's like 2" too short for my tastes.

So i stopped into Joann to take a look at their pre-smocked fabrics and I like a couple of the prints. I'm tempted to just sew up my own smocked dress.

Is this as simple as it seems?? Just buy the stuff and run a seam up it and finish the bottoms??

How do I measure for how much I need? I feel a bit weird wrapping it around me in the store. Do I measure for my hips or bust or which ever's bigger?

i'm also a plus size, though i carry most of my extra weight in my belly which often makes me look pregnant. the way the dress kind of poofs/flares out a bit actually helped camouflage my big belly rather than accentuate it.
